Needing some info for a 2007 GSXR 750

Hey guys have been on here in the past and gotten great help from very good people and im calling upon once again. I have a 2007 gsxr 750 that has been sitting for some time and just recently pulled it out and rode it and it seems like between 1-3 gear on the low end it bogs or is surely not running right but hit 4-6 and she purrs lol. Some im just wondering can you run a fuel cleaner like from autozone in with a tank of gas and also what spark plugs would i look at getting for it have been away at school and now that im almost done and the weather is better im looking to put some miles on it also i have heard about once you put an after market slip on, on the bike it needs to be re tuned for that exhaust? because i keep getting an F1 code at times on the display. And can i benefit from putting one of the programmers on it as well? Now that i ask all of this I would also like to know of a decent place to go that wont play games with me I live in the dickinson area about 30 minutes south of galveston so im wondering if theyre are any good mechanics and shops in the area that i can do business with once again thanks guy yall never steer anyone wrong

Thats it... I think Patrick did it to mine for like 65 bucks if I rememeber correctly I have a slip on pipe and didnt have to retune it...as for cleaner I would run Seafoam from walmart autozone White and Red bottle in automotive section...Use Recommended amount and nothing more..run a new tank of fuel through it and see if you can unclog all that gunk

wont need a tune on the exhaust if just a slip on, would help if you went ahead and changed out the air filter, spark plugs, and grab a can of that seafoam (good ) just DO NOT use the whole can!

You don't need a programmer for the slip on. Looks like the plugs should be CR9E. Seafoam or Barryman Chem tool should clean the injectors up. Read the bottle. Change the air filter at the same time. You will be down to the airbox anyway. Its about a 30 minute job. You can PM me if you need more info

Is it the butterfly valve on the intake or exhaust side and can you actually take it out completely I have a jardine slip on right now but might be looking to get an m4 or yoshimura sometime in the future so im hoping i dont need the cat converter changed out the plugs and put some seafoam in there running good now

Hey thanks for the advice changed the plugs and put some seafoam in there instant improvement thanks again now just have to get that butterfly valve issue fixed can it be removed totally or is it just caused by a loose throttle cable I have a jardine slip on and looking to maybe get an m4 or yoshimura someday so im hoping i can run those just as easy?
